The car modelled was purchased from Tildesley Ford, Walsall, for £1250 on August 1st 1973 by a then 25 year old engineering company MD, Ivor Grange. He bought it off the showroom floor, pleasing salesmen who’d nicknamed this colour ‘doom blue’; yellow or orange being the fashion. Unusually, it had been built with black cloth seats but he requested two dealer-fit extras, a vinyl roof and Dinitrol rust-proofing. He drove it for 10 years, 56,000 miles, before putting it in his garage for restoration. In 2007 Ivor sold it, untouched, to Midlands-based enthusiast Mark Rogers who totally restored the car and was delighted that Ivor was able to join him displaying the car in the 2017 NEC Classic Car Show Pride of Ownership competition.
